To everyone’s surprise, a ton of chocolate flowed out of a factory and solidified on a street in a western German after a leak at the factory.

The German newspaper Soester Anzeiger reported Tuesday that a “small technical defect” involving a storage tank caused the sweet and sticky spill from the DreiMeister chocolate factory in Westoennen.

About 25 firefighters got the job of prying the coating off with shovels and using hot water and torches to remove remaining bits from cracks and holes.
